A limb has fallen from the family tree. I keep hearing a voice that whispers, grieve for me, remember the best times, the laughter, the song, the good life I lived while I was strong. Continue my heritage, I’m counting on you. Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through. My mind is at ease my soul is at rest, remember all how I was truly blessed. Continue tradition no matter how small. Go on with your life, don’t state at the walls. I miss you dearly, so hold up your chin, until that beautiful day we’re together again.
